“The doctors said I probably wouldn’t live very long….”
Our founding pastor, the late Rev. Julius Sasportas, would often share the story of his fragile start in life. But he defied the odds and lived for over 90 years.
Rev. Sasportas’ experience is a metaphor for the Co-op City Baptist Church.
We’ve had to scrape, sacrifice and fight for everything. Although we’ve been knocked down many times, by God’s grace, we have never been KNOCKED OUT.
Any day now, cranes will arrive on the site, and the “digging” will begin!
Our new church edifice will include a state-of-the-art facility to house a comprehensive youth education and recreational program.
But, we can do more things faster for our kids if we’re not in debt. Working in the red is why many large community-based projects shut down. And we will not fail these kids! We need to earn $100,000 in a year.
Kindly donate, and share this link through social media so others can join this effort.
It’s easy to say you want our kids to excel in math, reading, technology and science, but will you actively support such an outcome?
Even if you don’t know us, please do this **(seriously)** …
Pray over your credit card. Then make your donation as a love offering to God. He will bless you for being a blessing to children. Thank you!
From infants to 5th graders, we welcome you to bring your kids as we have fun learning about our Savior through our exciting and interactive programs.
Whether it’s singing and dancing with our worship team, listening to storytellers bring the Bible to life, or being led by the Holy Spirit to apply God’s Word to their lives, children love every second of it. Your children will be encouraged to grow spiritually at all ages by a fun and passionate team, as well as building lasting friendships with other kids.
This ministry is about more than just having an amazing time on a Sunday. We want to see strong families raising healthy kids — spiritually, physically & emotionally. We understand the power of partnering with parents and we are here for YOU!
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. (Proverbs 22:6)
We want you to know that we consider it an honor and privilege to pour into the lives of children each week and we will never take the responsibility lightly.
